Apple fixes battery issue with 5.5-inch iPhone 6: Report

A few reports suggested that Apple is having battery problems along with the forthcoming iPhone 6. Apple wants to ensure the design is slim and thin, but the manufacturers were having a difficult figuring out how to meet the demands of the supplier. As per a new report surfacing from Taiwanese shores, Apple has apparently fixed the issue.


Taiwan’s Economic Daily News reports Apple has hired Taiwan’s Simplo Technologies who have reportedly fixed the battery problem. Simplo is among the 2 manufacturers for the forthcoming iPhone 6, with the 2nd one being Desay. The latter is yet to fix this problem, but the report says Simplo has already offered Apple with a flexible unit meeting the demands of the firm. Apple is rumored to be focusing on 2 new iPhone 6 designs, one with a 4.7-inch screen while the 2nd one carries 5.5-inch form factor.

The above report doesn’t point out if the bottleneck was with the 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch, but it’s likely that it was present in both designs since both are rumored to come with a similar width. The forthcoming iPhone 6 is also said to come with an A8 processor, Touch ID, NFC, a 1,900 mAh battery, and should release along with iOS 8 as its operating system. Speculations claim Apple will release the device in September, but it could be only for the 4.7-inch design. Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities suggested the 5.5-inch design could get postponed, as long as 2015 due to a few production problems.
